9-21 April 2015 Cold Spring Harbor Lab Xenopus course:
Xenopus is an extraordinary in vivo model for cell and developmental biology. The ease of loss- and gain-of-function approaches allows rapid mechanistic analysis; this can be combined with classic embryological manipulations and state of the art imaging. As advances in human genomics rapidly expand our list of novel disease genes, Xenopus is emerging as a powerful, high-throughput system for studying unknown gene function.
For this year’s course, we are fortunate to have two fully funded fellowships for applicants who come from non-standard backgrounds (ie, physics, math, computer science, engineering), as well as several half scholarships for people entirely new to Xenopus.
Informal queries to Karen Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mustafa Khokha (email@example.com).
Deadline for applications: 23 February.
